A Way With Words Cardmaking Craft Drops Silk Microfine Glitter

Butterfly Wings

IMG_0873Hi Friends!  It’s EK, and I am popping in today to share a new card I crafted using some long neglected crafting supplies and A Way with Words Butterfly Flourish.  I just love how elegant the flourishes of this die set make creating something special so simple.

IMG_0859Step One:  On a crafting mat or glass, drop three similar liquid watercolors.  I used Dr. Ph Martins Hydrus (just unearthed from my moving boxes) in two shades of red and one dark pink.

IMG_0860Step Two:  Spray the liquid watercolor with plenty of water.

IMG_0861Step Three:  Dip a piece of Watercolor Paper into the liquid watercolor and completely saturated with color.  I was able to get three dips out of the puddle.

IMG_0862Step Four:  Heat set the watercolor paper.  Then spray with a iridescent watercolor spray.  I used Perfect Pearls Mists.

IMG_0863Step Five:  Die cut the watercolor paper using the Butterfly Flourish die set.  I used just the large flourish once and the small flourish twice for this step.

IMG_0864Step Six:  Add a piece of Clear Double Sided Adhesive to the watercolor paper.  Die cut the detailed butterfly from the Butterfly Flourish die set.

IMG_0865Step Seven:  Peel off the backing paper to the Clear Double Sided Adhesive and add Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter to the detailed butterfly.

IMG_0866Step Eight:  On a second piece of watercolor paper, die cut a frame using both the Stitched Indented Rectangle die set and Fitted Indented Rectangle die set.

IMG_0867Step Nine:  Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the die cut frame to an A2 card frame.  Using a combination of 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive and Kids Choice Glue, add the flourished butterfly.  Using Kids Kids Choice Glue add the glittered butterfly to the flourished butterfly.

IMG_0869Step Ten:  Add a sentiment using the Love & Hearts Collection stamp set and two tones of ink.  I used both Picked Raspberry and Festive Berries Distress Oxide.

IMG_0870Step Eleven:  Adhere the two smaller butterfly flourishes.  Add three drops of Pearl Rose Craft Drops and three drops of Transparent Crystal Craft Drops.

IMG_0874I love how this is a surprising simple this card was to create but how elegant it looks.

IMG_0875Let us know in the comments below what A Way With Words dies you would use with your long neglected supplies.  Until then, happy crafting.

Hello Card

August 20, 2020

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Hello Card.

To create my Hello Card, I’ve used a variety of dies from the Sidekick Essentials Collection and Joset Designs. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my card at home.

Step One. Choose two or three pieces of patterned paper that all coordinate together. From one of the patterned papers, die cut a 4″ Stitched Indented Rectangle out of the patterned paper. Distress the edges of the rectangle. Ink the edges of the rectangle using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Die cut a 3 3/4″ Fitted Indented Rectangle out of a second piece of patterned paper. Distress the edges of the rectangle. Ink the edges of the rectangle using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Three. Either use a third piece of patterned paper or flip over the patterned paper you just used and die cut a 3 1/2″ Stitched Indented Rectangle. 1/2″ from the bottom on the right hand side, tear the paper a bit into the middle. 1/2″ from the left at the top left hand side, tear the paper down a bit. Distress the edges of the rectangle. Ink the edges of the rectangle using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. From the Sidekick Essentials 8 die, die cut the large stitched rectangle out of a piece of vellum.

Step Five. Die cut a 3/4″ Diagonal Stitched Fishtail out of a piece of kraft cardstock. Cut the fishtail down to 2 3/4″. Distress the edges of the fishtail. Ink the edges of the fishtail using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Six. From the Sidekick Essentials 7 die, die cut the leaf bunch and two single leaves out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Seven. From the Words 2 – Thinking of You die, die cut the Hello word out of black cardstock.

Step Eight. Adhere the 3 1/2″ stitched indented rectangle to the 3 3/4″ fitted indented rectangle.

Step Nine. Adhere the vellum stitched rectangle in the middle of the 3 1/2″ stitched indented rectangle. Adhere the leaf bunch to the bottom middle of the 3 1/2″ stitched indented rectangle. The leaf bunch will sit overtop of the vellum piece. Adhere the other two single leaves as desired around the leaf bunch.

Step Ten. Staple the fishtail 3/8″ from the bottom and all the way to the left hand side of the 3 3/4″ fitted indented rectangle. Adhere the Hello word to the middle of the fishtail.

Step Eleven. Foam square the 3 3/4″ fitted indented rectangle to the middle of the 4″ stitched indented rectangle.

Step Twelve. Cut a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 5 1/4″ x 8″, score at 4″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Hello Card.

DIY Glitter Background Halloween Card

September 11, 2019

Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. Today I have a DIY Background using Silk Microfine Glitter and the new Spider Web die set from Joset Designs. Below you will find the steps to create your own background card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″ and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2)

Step 2 – Trim Black Soft Finish Cardstock to 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″. Diecut Fitted Indented Rectangles using the trimmed cardstock.

Step 3 – Diecut Spider Web using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Adhere Pixie Spray to the backside to create a stencil. Adhere the stencil on top of the diecut created from Step 2.

Step 4 – Create your own Glitter Paste by mixing Silk Microfine Glitter Copper Rose and Texture Paste Transparent Gloss. Apply the mix onto the Cardstock with the stencil. Once completely covered remove the stencil and let dry.

Step 5 – Adhere the Background created from Step 4 to the card front using Foam Tape.

Step 6 – Diecut Spider Web (spiders x 3) and adhere to card front using Foam Squares. I added Shimmer using a Shimmer Pen for added sparkle.

Step 7 – Stamp Spooky sentiment onto Black Soft Finish Cardstock using Versamark. Sprinkle Gold Embossing powder and remove the excess. Heat set it with a heat tool.

Step 8 – Diecut Labels 1 using the sentiment created from Step 7. Adhere to card using Foam Tape.

This Glitter Paste technique can be used for any occasion by simply changing the color of the Glitter. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
